A Perspective on Island Schools

So Much FOMO...

Deciding to further our careers and go to veterinary school brought up discussions on how sometimes it seems everyone around us is getting married, buying a house or rolling in the dough.

Keeping Yourself In Check
How many times a day do you find yourself staring into your phone watching other people live their lives rather than paying attention to living yours?

A Night on the Town with the Bad Girls of Burlesque
In this episode, we share our experience and thoughts after viewing a burlesque show in New Orleans. The Bad Girls of Burlesque are a collection of bold, bad ass beauties who are able to transport you to another sensual world through their onstage performances. We review provocative acts ranging from a sexy serial killer a la Michael Myers to a seductive vampiress with a snake, all while being entertained by a very comedic MC. Jess and Kevin left the show feeling inspired to join burlesque classes and learn more about this performance art. Fun fact, milk is a VERY underutilized and versatile prop...

Episode 1: Kevin and Jess's Grand Introduction
This first episode is an introduction to who we are and where we're heading with this podcast. It's a little disorganized, very impulsive but ultimately what we wanted, a candid conversation between two veterinarians. Future episodes will feature more organization but will still be just as raw and real and we're open to talking about whatever is on our mind or what followers want to hear.
